NAN reports that the House was embroiled in a leadership crisis last Thursday, with 22 members passing a vote of confidence on the Speaker, Abubakar Suleiman, and principal officers of the Assembly.
Babale Abubakar, the Majority Leader of the House, told newsmen in Bauchi on Monday that the latest attack, which happened at about 4 p.m. as the lawmakers were having a meeting, left six of them injured.
Abubakar said, “At least six vehicles were destroyed by the invaders who also smashed window glasses."
“They were over 100 and were carrying guns, sticks, and machetes.”
“It was terrifying." Some of us ran towards the exit door and were badly hurt, "he added.
No sooner than the Special Adviser on State and National Assembly Liaison to the State Governor, Sani Mohammed Burra, left them, the hoodlums unleashed their mayhem.
He also said that one of them held him by the neck and asked if he was still a leader in the house.
Abubakar said, “He said they were ready to kill me." Six members were injured in the process. Some were taken to the hospital and I believed they would be fine.
“It was a scary situation. It’s sad.
Abubakar, however, said the matter had been reported to the Commissioner of Police in the state.
